The University awarded a contract for Marketing and Travel Management for GET to Lily Shine Corp/China Training Programs, Champagin, IL, for an estimated $750,000.
The University has a need for marketing and travel management for Global Education and Training across China and in Urbana/Champaign. This is needed to recruit and communicate with potential Chinese students and executives as well as those in the program. The end result of this will be continued growth of the program. The university, on information and belief, has concluded that only one vendor can meet its need or can meet the need economically. That vendor is Lily Shine Corp/China Training Programs. The university has provided detailed justification to support its conclusion as shown on the attached Sole Source Justification Form. Although the university has presented this as a sole source procurement, we are seeking competitive information from firms with the capability of meeting the university's need (even if performed in a manner different from what has been presented) to contact us and provide sufficient information to show the need can be met. If we receive that information, the Chief Procurement Officer will offer a public hearing to consider the matter. Hearing information is described below
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the To effectively recruit students to attend the programs, it is necessary to have a local resource familiar with both Chinese and American culture, environment, business processes and procedures
